“We thank Joshua for his dedicated service to the children of DeKalb County,” Superintendent Steve Green said through a spokesman. “We wish him well.”
Like his new boss, Williams received his bachelor’s degree from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Fla. Williams has also earned a Master of Science in Project Management and a Master of Business Administration in Operations and Supply Chain Management from Colorado Technical University. Williams is currently working on a doctorate in Business Administration at Capella University.
Williams' departure is the most recent in the last 18 months as the district has lost several critical top administrators, including regional superintendent Ralph Simpson, who now works for Clayton County Public Schools and former Chief Academic Officer Lisa Martin, who resigned in January after less than two years.
